Kennedy Peak is a 2,703-metre (8,868 ft) peak in the Falam District of the Chin State of Burma (Myanmar) that dominates the Tedim Road. It is the second highest mountain in Chin State, next to Mount Victoria.

Due to its strategic location it was the scene of a battle during World War II during which Subedar Ram Sarup Singh undertook actions that would lead to the award of the Victoria Cross.[2]
